Democrats plan their own hearings on outed CIA agent

House and Senate Democrats, frustrated that the Republican majority has held no inquiries into how a covert CIA agent's name was leaked, plan their own forum Friday, RAW STORY has learned.

Last week, the Democratic National Committee noted in an email titled, "What's the difference between a family cat and Karl Rove," that "just a few years ago, these same GOP lawmakers determined it was necessary to focus on the fan mail received by the Clinton family cat, Socks."

5. Hearings and meetings go hand-in-hand to reaching out to our people.
The fascist wing of the republican party can't stop us from getting out the truth.

Yes? :bounce:

6. I want hearings that pile up the proof for further investigation and
arrest of the creeps. Something that there is a record of and proof that crimes were committed and laws broken. Having local parties and getting things out to the public is nice, but we need legal manuvers to get these creeps in jail. The public memory is too short and I would like as many written and documented details as possible so there is no question when the arrests start.

7. I wonder if the repuke assholes in charge will let them use a room in one
of OUR (you know, we the people) office buildings. If they refuse again, I think they should hold it right outside, attract alot of attention, not only to the Plame outing, but also to the horrible pettiness of the repukes. :grr:

9. I'm lovin it!
~snip~

The panel of witnesses will include former intelligence officers and analysts who will discuss the impact of such disclosures, based on decades of experience and service to our country on intelligence and national security matters.

The hearing comes only days after the witnesses who will appear at the hearing, along with other former intelligence officers and analysts, delivered to the House and Senate leadership a letter expressing deep concern over both the disclosure of the identity of a covert intelligence officer and the continuing partisan attacks on that officer. The letter said that public statements questioning her status and the significance of disclosing her identity reveal an astonishing ignorance of the intelligence community and the role of cover.
